Teaching students about PARALLELISM in literature is not always easy. One reason for this is the fact the same word in used in mathematics. The math concept is not necessarily wrong for use in English class, it is just that it is differently used. Another obstacle is that the one term has FIVE MEANINGS IN terms of literature. So, rather than dance around, teaching one at a time as they rise, this presentation offers all 5 in one location, suitable as an interactive notebook handout as well.
This presentation offers visual cues and is illustrated with stories \ films familiar to most teens to foster greater engagement. Once presented, teachers can reflect back on the purposes of each as the year moves forward.
This is one of the concepts covered TWICE in the Ultimate English BrainCandy-StudyGuide, also found in this store. Look for it offered in the BrainCandy Bundle 2, too. Available in the BrainCandy-StudyGuide as well is how these parallelisms are found in the 7 Statements of Structure as students prepare to write their essays. Check out the StudyGuide - there is nothing like it on the market for teens. It is like a college level Bar Charts meets an elementary Where's Waldo!
This 12 slide presentation can be taught as each type of parallelism arises in class (a teachable moment) and take about 5 minutes to cover it, or it can be presented as a mini lesson and take about 20-30 minutes depending on your discussion time.
